LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas defensive tackle Marquel Combs, who was rated among the best junior college prospects in the nation last year, intends to transfer after being released from his scholarship.

Combs failed to break into the Jayhawks' starting lineup after arriving this season from Pierce College. Kansas coach Charlie Weis said recently that it was possible Combs would redshirt, but instead announced in a statement Monday that Combs intends to transfer.

The 6-foot-3, 305-pound Combs chose the Jayhawks over offers from numerous Division I programs. Among them were Big 12 rivals Baylor, Kansas State and Iowa State.

Combs did not say where he intends to transfer. Under terms of his release, he will not be allowed to transfer to another Big 12 school.
